's fiscal outlook. we have cut the deficit in half as a share of the economy, experiencing the fastest fury of deficit reduction since the demobilization of world war ii. the budget continues this progress. bringing deficits down to a share of the economy to 2% by 2023 and putting the debt on a declining path. we've seen a notable and significant decline in health care spending growth over the last few years, in part due to the affordable care act, we know that over the long run, the growth of the health care costs continues to be our nation's most pressing fiscal challenge. that is why the budget builds on the savings and reforms to health reform law with additional measures to strengthen medicare and medicaid and encourage high-quality and efficient health care. we also know that revenue has to be a part of the solution to our nation's long-term fiscal challenges. given the aging of our population and the declining ratio of workers to retirees, we will need additional revenue to maintain our commitment to seniors, while also making the investments that are needed to grow our economy and e
the deficit with $17 trillion in debt. that is a failure on the democratic side and i am a democrat. tax reform that will not only simplify the tax code. this is to simply pay our bills. >> let's talk about bills that specifically the kind that get printed. isust -- and the new chair scheduled to testify tomorrow. her is we will hear from a projection of the continues to recover. we have the fact that moved from washington being net negative on the economic recovery, maybe the neutral. can be a positive aspect. a number of members will press on when we will see some additional relaxation and quantitative easing. >> is that what you're going to ask? are those the questions you'll ask? >> by the time they get down to me, i'm sure that they will be asked. one of the areas that i want to highlight is one of the coming fiscal crisis that we have to get ahead of her. we have now had a true billion dollars in student debt that exceeds credit card debt. we are starting to see the price diminish state and the federal support. with the rising college costs, we bought that off with debt. that is co
'm on medication that i tell them the deficit is falling and falling pretty sharply. i think this move fiscal restraint is grossly underappreciated. i will talk about that in a minute or two. this mood of fiscal restraint will persist as long as one thing continues, that is republican control of the house. i will leave it to dr. cook to give us his analysis of where the house is headed after the 2014 election but i think this theme has legs and will continue for quite some time. now somebody asked me right before this, what about all the gridlock in washington? i would agree that we look dysfunctional in this city but i would also say that we've had some fairly interesting breakthroughs in the last two or three months. we got a budget deal. paul ryan and patty murray. i think paul ryan is growing as a politician. not as reflexively conservative. i think he was willing to look at even some modest revenue increases. we got a farm bill. wasn't a great bill but we did get a farm bill. most importantly you see clear signs from the republican leadership in the house that they did not want a crisis

and wages for all americans. at a time when our deficit has been cut in half it allows us to meet op gagbligations of future generations without leaving them a mountain of debt. >> the budget will impact the bottom line for most americans for better and also for worse. the earned income tax credit expands eligibility to ages 20-24 and older workers ages 55 to 66. it is to offset payroll and intomorr income taxes but it will close the loophole that is allow higher income workers to avoid similar. my irs it allows them to save retirement. they back savings up to 15,000 and rolls it into a traditional irs. college care tax breaks which would give 1.71 families an average tax cut. this budget like the previous two are certain to take an uphill battle in congress. tough battle ahead for this one. >>> the time is 10 minutes to the top of the hour almost. an experienced pilot gets a rude awakening from one of the passengers. wait until you hear what his note says. >> a baby brought to tears through a sight on tv. >> who this little one can't stand to look at. >> did you recognize it? >> wai
the deficit. most important of all, it is about energy independence for our country. it is about working with canada and producing energy in this country so that we get our energy here locally rather than having to get it from the middle east. that is what americans want. they want us to be energy secure in this country. to do that, we need to produce more energy like we are doing in my state of north dakota and montana across the border. movepipeline would mode -- that loyal as well as canadian oil. it is about producing oil here, or getting it from our closest friend and neighbor, canada, rather than being dependent on the middle east. classification you to have to wait on a pipeline, how safe israel transportation of these products versus pipeline transportation? is it.that we are becoming more energy secure. it is great. it is jobs and what people want. to go with that energy, we need infrastructure. that infrastructure includes pipelines as well as moving products safely by train or truck. the keystone xl will take 500 trucks a day off rose in western north dakota. it is a safety is
, the deficits are going on and they are ridiculous. cut the military budgets, they do not have the money for different things. i live in baltimore city. years lived here over 33 and our mayor is such a manipulator. this is how bad it is. mayoryears ago, our manipulator that she is, she is good at selling stuff. million dollars in federal funds for infrastructure and used them to pave the roads in the downtown district, which were not in bad shape, so they could meet the requirements to have a race on labor day. what it really was, the organizers of open wheel racing -- it failed for three years. the second year she told these whopping lies about the revenue. host: julian, greensboro, north carolina. caller: it is your responsible to invest in infrastructure as the government. if you look back in the industrial revolution, the technological advances in transportation would have been impossible without the investment of private investors. the government has not been one to advance the technology. it is up to private investors to put that money out. if you look at your report card, 3.6 tril
's ever proposed for, not for reducing deficit but more domestic spending. we've had huge spending increases, so those are such nonstarters, i don't see how you get common ground. granted, we're living under another budget agreement for now. but it's clear he's moving farther to the left to try and -- for those reasons and he's not trying to move to the middle. >> congressman, you said that three times, he's moved to the left, it's a nonstarter. does that mean i can't ask you about closing loopholes or -- >> yeah, sure, go ahead. >> are there any ways in which you all could maybe come to something and end up with one or two or three of these things and get some of the things that you want? >> yeah, so we just -- our chairman of the ways and means committee, dave camp, put out a specific discussion draft of tax reform, which does just that. it closes loopholes. instead of using the money for spending which increases the deficit -- he has $1.8 trillion in tax increases, half goes for spending. we're saying take the loophole closures and use it to lower tax rates to grow the economy.
on personal character traits, which is you have a deficit of hope and a surplus of hurdles. so they try to deal with the hope part of it. they say let's build you up, build this character up because you have all the hurdles to deal with. i say let's do both things as once. you have to deal with the structural problems, all the things we say that are not really getting covered but they are. because if somebody is predatory lending for mortgages and that's disproportionally black people, that is structural racism. that is a structural violence against the black family, against the black community, against black men. every one of those things, whether it be mass incarceration or disproportionate drug arrests or any of that, violence in schools or suspensions of black boys higher ratio. so we have to look at those and call those out for what they are and say, we have to deal with all of those both what the boys need to do differently but what we need to do differently as a society. >> i also want to bring in boyce watkins founder of your black world.com. boyce some people already on board w

and deficit and entitlement reform and all of those things. this president likes his government super sized. this budget will never balance. and i think the president wants taxpayers to pay more so that washington can spend more >> what i read is he is asking for million in new spending. does that go anywhere? >> i don't think it does. last time he had a budget, not even any of the democrats voted for it. his policies make it harder to get back to work. >> $17.4 trillion is the debt clock. that is ridiculous. in three years from now, you will be $19 trillion? how is that acceptable to anybody? trying balance a book in washington, d.c. >> what we will see is the fastest growing part of the budget is interest on the debt. the president added $6.9 trillion in the debt. this continues to be a driving issue for the country. you know, we are not going to be able to sustain the safety net with this debt and interest. >> i think the viewers get it, too. what other republican options do we have? >> the options are to say let's deal with the issues we know get people back to work. we have a health ca
mentioned his work on repairing the state's budget and job creation. brown turned 25 billion dollar deficit in 2011 into a surplus this year. his approval rating is at an all-time high at 58%. the state's open primary is in june. >>> on the cover of "people" magazine, paula deen is opening up about her scandal last summer. in the interview she says i feel like embattled and disgraced will always follow my name. it's like that black football player who recently came out. he said i just want to be known as a football player. i don't want to be known as a gay football player. i know exactly what he's saying. deen is referring to nfl prospect michael sam. i just don't think this works! i think maybe she ought to try something else, joe. what do you think? i'm wondering if perhaps she might want to just stay away from talking. >> i think she really should. it's like that. >> talking thing is not working for her. >> it doesn't work. >> it's like that black football player? >> black football player as opposed to one of the white football player. it's like that black football player. >> she started
small needles to thread for the trusted deficits. president obama has demonstrated and wants to be a partner for peace. he is committed to trying to end the conflict and all of his claims. how he can do that? let's be candid. some of you doubt it. as it israelis security officials will a test, -- attest, abbas has been against the violence. i have also spent many hours with president abbas. i believe he clearly understands both the tremendous benefit of peace and the great costs of failure. he understands that in terms of his own people, his own grandchildren, the country he hopes to be able to lead, and in terms of the history that be leakers -- beleaguers all. he know the people what never have the self-determination without ending the conflict in a solution that delivers two states for two peoples. and so this prime minister netanyahu when he looks me in the eye and said i cannot accept a deal with the palestinians that does not make the people of israel safer. we agree 100%. [applause] but i argue, there is a distinction between a unilateral withdrawal from lebanon where
powerlines in africa. financial prudence dictates we reduce our deficits by not spending the money at all. if we must spend it and must choose between africa or america, mr. speaker, i choose spending it in america. america spends more than $40 billion a year on foreign aid, money we do not have, borrow to get and cannot afford to pay back. mr. speaker, if financial irresponsibility and economic insanity have a home, rest assured they live in washington, d.c. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. for what purpose does the gentleman from massachusetts seek recognition? >> unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman from massachusetts is recognized for one minute. >> mr. speaker, two months ago emergency unemployment benefits expired for over one million americans, including 20,000 veterans and yet this house has not taken up legislation to provide these workers and families with necessary relief. mr. tierney: i rise to ask immediate action on the unemployment compensation act which pr
's advocate here. the country has a massive deficit. we need the money. so why should the country continue to subsidize the most profitable industry, rather. this this is according to sage works. oil and gas, the energy industry, most profitable. >> well, alex, and i would ask, you know, why should they subsidize the oil industry. and the fact is, they don't. percentage depletion is not a subsidy. it's not a loophole. and that's the thing that's perplexing to me. why, if it's not broken, don't fix it. i would challenge those who would say that to take a look at percentage depletion. it's not a subsidy. it's not a loophole. so i would agree with them on that point. >> okay. back to the politics of all this. this is the latest in a string of policies that have fractured the gop. who is in charge of the party? >> well, i think any time a majority party is outside of the white house, and you could have said the same thing during the bush years with the democrats. you know, there's just a lot of discussion, a lot of chatter out there. if you're in the minority. but the fact is, i think even rep

to this aid. difficult steps need to be undertaken to right size gas prices and trim budget deficits, but ukraine should be given a long enough lease so that these necessary reforms don't strangle a nation today dealing with threats to its very existence. second cry me i can't. -- crimea. they have invaded and the very accord they signed guaranteeing crimea's territory. no doubt president putin was sore and no doubt he didn't like the fact that the united states voiced its strong support for the right of a sovereign ukraine to make independent decisions about its future partnerships and no doubt he is infuriated that the ukrainian people are now on their way to getting their way. but this is not a schoolyard. you don't get to push around weaker kids just because you don't like them. this is the 21st century. the reason we belong to organizations like the united nations or the reason we negotiate treaties like the budapest memorandum is because we now understand, after centuries of european war, how destabilizing this kind of behavior is. the irony for russia, of course, is that this

to address the debt and deficit. his vice president told democrats at their retreat that they have no interest and won't push for trade promotional authority. and the president has said his focus will be going around congress instead of working with it. so we have two options. we can follow the president's lead and pack it in for the year, just wait for the election, or we can pursue our own vision and continue to present alternatives to the mess that the president has brought us over the last five years. and that's exactly what we will do. we'll lead and our members will not shy away from advancing better solutions for the american people. it's why our ways and means chairman has commenced a discussion about how to reform our broken tax system. that's why our leaders have outlined a vision for how we would tackle immigration reform. that's why chairman ryan will write a balanced budget that helps save our entitlement programs. and it's why our members will offer an alternative when it comes to obamacare. we'll offer better solutions on jobs, job training, education, and a host of
